Brewers designated C Josmil Pinto for assignment.

The Brewers claimed Pinto off waivers from the Padres just before Christmas, but he's being shuffled off the 40-man roster to make room for incoming first baseman Chris Carter. Concussion fallout held the 26-year-old catcher to just 72 games played in the minors this past season. When he did manage his way onto the field, the backstop hit .228/.300/.369 in three minor league stops down in the Twins' system.

Brewers claimed C Josmil Pinto off waivers from the Padres.

Pinto was claimed off waivers from the Twins back in November, but he was recently designated for assignment to clear a spot for Buddy Baumann on the 40-man roster. The 26-year-old was limited to 72 games in the minors this year due to concussion issues and will provide some catching depth with his new club.

Pinto saw 169 at-bats with the catcher-strapped Twins in 2015, but he failed to do much with them. The 26-year-old catcher slashed .219/.315/.391 with seven homers and 18 RBI. The Padres are getting themselves a backstop with a nice bit of pop if nothing else.

The Twins hope Josmil Pinto (concussion) will be cleared to play in a minor league game Monday.

Pinto claims that he is no longer experiencing post-concussion symptoms, but he failed part of his concussion test on Friday. The results of a second test should be available Sunday, at which point he could be cleared for game action. The Twins hope Pinto will be ready for Opening Day, but if he's not they could potentially backdate a DL stint and he'd miss minimal time.
